Domaine de Fontsainte Corbieres Gris de Gris Rose - Grain & Vine | Curated Wines, Rare Bourbon and Tequila Collection

Domaine de Fontsainte Corbieres Gris de Gris Rose

$ 18

All of Fontsainte’s vineyards are situated within the Corbières Boutenac appellation. However, only “Clos du Centurion” takes the appellation on the label; other cuvées take the Corbières appellation

Rigorous pruning along with green harvests keep yields low

Existing vines are pruned in a goblet; new vines are being trellised

Cuves are gravity-fed—a mix of temperature-controlled stainless steel and cement

Corbières “Gris de Gris” Rosé:

Hand harvested

Gris de Gris is blended by saignée

After a 24-hour débourbage or settling of the must, alcoholic fermentation takes place at cool temperatures for 35 days

Malolactic fermentation is blocked

Wines rest for one month before bottling to preserve freshness and aromatic intensity
